Request for White Papers

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

The FESAC Strategic Planning Panel invites all members of the fusion-research and plasma-science communities to submit a white paper expressing a particular scientific topic’s status and priorities, as updated from the 2007 Greenwald’s FESAC panel report on Priorities, Gaps, and Opportunities, and a separate white paper expressing that topic's associated initiatives, i.e., new and exciting topic sub-elements of a given program element. Format guidance is provided in a separate document and will explain that both white papers should put the author's comments into the context of the mission of DOE-FES for all three program elements and, for the Foundations and the Long Pulse program elements, into the context of the Gaps as analyzed in Chapter 4 of the 2007 Greenwald-Panel report and the first two Challenges on page 9 of E. Synakowski's 9 April presentation "The charge for advice on strategic planning". White papers will be accepted until 1 September 2014.

Please submit your written submissions via e-mail simultaneously to Mark Koepke (SP Panel) and to Mark London (USBPO) by using the email address All of the white papers received will be posted or linked for public viewing on this website.
